The Carter is open today, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
From his fashion photographs to his thoughtful depictions of American life, Parks used the camera as his tool for proclaiming the value of an American community built on freedom and equality.
This exhibition pairs an interactive installation by new-media artist Camille Utterback with a century of art by women depicting motion from the Carter’s collection.
The Carter houses one of the great collections of American art, from historical landscapes captured on canvas to city streets seen through the lens of a camera. We’re regularly changing out these works, so each time you visit, you know you’ll encounter something you haven’t seen before.
Commissioned for the reopening of the Carter, Puente Nuevo is an immersive experience of large-scale artwork made from the materials used to construct piñatas.
When you enter the museum, take a moment to marvel at James Surls’ otherworldly sculpture Seven and Seven Flower, a complex portrait of family, land, and self.
When you view Scott and Stuart Gentling’s watercolors of Texas birds, you’ll want to get close. The level of detail is extraordinary—hundreds of brushstrokes make up each feather, and there are hundreds of feathers!
Commissioned for the Carter, this large-scale, site-specific installation looks like frozen, Technicolor vapor. Created out of more than eighty miles of multicolored thread, Plexus no. 34 draws attention to the majestic architecture and natural light of the museum’s Atrium.
